    I played World of Illusion first too. (Simultaneously actually). World of Illusion seemed better at first, I agree, but Castle of Illusion somehow doesn't get old, no matter how many times I pay it.
    The Mega Drive was far inferior to the NES in terms of diffusion rate and sales in the Japanese market, though there were ardent Sega users. But in the US and Europe, we knew Sega could challenge Nintendo. We aimed at dominating those markets, hiring experienced staff for our overseas department in Japan, and revitalising Sega of America and the ailing Virgin group in Europe.

    Then we set about developing killer games.

    A truly wonderful platform game by Sega and Disney. I only recently added this title to my collection and really love playing this one. For purely nostalgic reasons I'd rank Quackshot and World of Illusion higher as they were titles I loved and played as a kid and yet still stand up today but taking off my rose-tinted specs for a second I reckon this game is every bit their equal.

    Played through this game yesterday. I like it, it sounds/plays/looks great. But somehow, I've always liked QuackShot and World of Illusion more. Is it memories? I wonder, if I would have played Castle lots back in the day if I would have liked it more. Somehow I don't think so, I love all Illusion games on Master System and didn't play those back in the day.

    One of the finest titles in the early days of our MD. Easy but quite addictive, sappy but a feast for the eyes, almost no replay value but rewarding nonetheless. For every little flaw in this game there's a huge virtue. I like World Of Illusion better, but this is just the beginning of a line of fine Disney games for the MD (with some major drawbacks, of course. Her'es lookin' at ya,Fantasia!).

    I must add I played the SMS version with my Everdrive yesterday. And wow, man, wow. It gives the already brilliant MD version a run for its money. It's a bit harder, requires a little strategy on some points and like its sisters, it pushes the then-known capabilities of the machine to the max. Lovely game.

    I thought the game got away with a lot but it was good. The 2nd level was charming, the toy land. I thought that made a lot of sense. That teacup level I thought was interesting. Wasn't sure why that was included but it was very interesting. I never completed the game. Was very very hard.
